    Default Sentencing for Possession of a Controlled Substance < 1 Gram, in Texas

    july 2007 poss cs < 1 gr. Texas
    I'd like to know what this charge carries. I have 1 prior, 1996 felony2 robbery, (it was a theft turned into a robbery after they said I fought with the security guard.) I did 7 years probation, it was revoked in the 6th year (no new charges), and 2 years prison time, no parole. Whats the next step? What can I do in my favor without a lawyer, and with a lawyer? How do I go about getting a court appointed lawyer? Will probation be offered or will I have to ask for it? Can they use my prior against me? Thanks for the insight

    What's the citation to the statute you've been charged with violating?

    That's not a citation to a statute. Either find the statute citation on the documents you received or look it up here.

    Petition for a court-appointed lawyer through the court where you are being prosecuted. If you ask, they should be able to provide you with a form. At some point, there will likely be an offered plea bargain, which may include a sentence deal pertaining to probation.

    You will have to fill out a document to petition for a court-appointed lawyer.
